Flu Symptoms Clinical Study in Dallas

The flu is a difficult illness, and one of the things that makes it so tough to grapple with is those all-too-familiar symptoms. They are uncomfortable, make it difficult to sleep or eat, and can last up to a week. The flu is also dangerous for high-risk people, and many medical conditions mimic flu symptoms. If you want help with your flu symptoms, a free diagnosis, and investigational medication that can help, we want to hear from you.

I Have Flu Symptoms. What Do I Do?

If you are experiencing flu symptoms, here’s what you should do:

  1. Remain at home. The flu is a dangerous illness that can lead to severe complications or even death in certain populations. This makes it very important to stay at home so that you do not spread your illness to others.
  2. Drink plenty of fluids. When you are suffering from the flu, it is important to stay very hydrated. Fevers, chills, and more can take a lot out of your body, and drinking plenty of water is important during this time.
  3. Understand the warning signs. If you are someone who is at a high risk of developing complications from the flu, it is important to know when you should seek medical attention.

Warning signs to seek medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  • Persistent dizziness, confusion, inability to arouse
  • Seizures
  • Not urinating
  • Severe muscle pain
  • Severe weakness or unsteadiness
  • Fever or cough that improves but then returns or worsens
  • Worsening of chronic medical conditions

Complications from the Flu

According to the CDC, most people who get the flu will recover in a few days to less than two weeks, but some people will develop complications (such as pneumonia) from the flu, some of which can be life-threatening and result in death.

Sinus and ear infections are examples of moderate complications from the flu, while pneumonia is a serious flu complication resulting from either flu virus infection alone or co-infection of the flu virus and bacteria. Other possible serious complications triggered by flu can include inflammation of the heart (myocarditis), brain (encephalitis), muscle tissues (myositis, rhabdomyolysis), and multi-organ failure (for example, respiratory and kidney failure). Flu virus infection of the respiratory tract can trigger an extreme inflammatory response in the body and lead to sepsis, the body’s life-threatening response to infection. Flu can also make chronic medical problems worse. For example, people with asthma may experience asthma attacks while they have the flu, and people with chronic heart disease may experience a worsening of this condition triggered by the flu.
